JAI 313 Just add B - bear sneak peek

This week at Just Add Ink we’re adding B for our new challenge. This means our project needs to include a colour, technique or anything starting with the letter B.
I’ve used lots of B’s on my card – can you pick them all?

Of course we have cuddly bears on there, but not just any bears. They’re a sweet sneak peek from a new set called Baby Bear, coming on June 1st. I was very excited to win this during a prize patrol at our Sydney Onstage event as I’m a lover of all things bear.
I’ve also used blushing bride striped paper & glimmer paper (bling!), and added a basic black & blushing bride bow (try saying that 3 times fast).

The bear & bow images are photo realistic, which means they include 2 or 3 stamps that together build up layers of shading & detail for a more realistic look. I used crumb cake, soft suede & early espresso ink pads for my bears. The set also includes really fun sentiments for lots of different occasions. For this card, I cut out the bears, sponged & curved the edges for a more rounded look.

See the bows? - I tried a new (to me) technique using the fine tipped glue pen. I totally covered the bows, eyes & nose with the glue. This dries leaving a lovely, shiny, non-sticky finish.

So that's all my B's for today, but remember to check out all the team's fun B creations on the Just Add Ink blog. Thanks for visiting & leave a comment if you have any questions or just to say hi.

Inky wishes, Di

PS: Remember to pin my Baby Bear card for later too.

Di this is just gorgeous! I love your two bears and their shiny bow ties (I will have to try the glue trick!). I love the bold pink background, the glimmer with the stripes is a great combo! xxx

This is such a sweet card! I think you've definitely out B'ed me with your card :)

Oh wow your two lovely bears are adorable Di! And I love how you've teamed them with the sparkle and stripes too - so pretty! The glue technique sounds great, too I will have to try it. xx

Lots of laughs, Di, I love all your B's. Cute little bears and I do love that blushing bride bling! Great tip on the glue, thanks.
